Theories considering extra dimensions predict the existence of color octect gause boson, which decay could be through flavor changing neutral current (FCNC) channels. These scenarios are normally not considered by LHC searches, although they could be quite important in order to study particular models. In this talk I will comment about the possibility of measuring a color octect gauge boson decaying to a boosted top and a light-quark jet at the LHC. I will describe an algorithm based on boosted reconstruction methods and show a tentative reach of the LHC for FCNC couplings.
